Texas Health Resources are laying off 3 percent of their workforce of more than 24,000, meaning over 700 will be losing their jobs.

In a news release the Arlington-based health care company said it “began a small number of layoffs this week as it takes a long-term view of its operations and continued service to the community.”

“While we regret having to take these actions, we want to be clear that only a small number of employees were affected,” said Michelle Kirby, Texas Health’s chief people officer. “There are job opportunities in other areas of Texas Health and we have a long track record of placing impacted employees in other roles in our system. We are working hard to do so for these individuals.”

The reductions are not centered at one hospital or location, the company said. Texas Health continues to grow numerous service lines and has plans to open two new hospitals in the next 24 months, along with expansion projects at existing facilities.

The recent layoffs, coupled with expansions in other areas of the system, reflect how Texas Health is reacting to market demands and the needs of local communities to provide services long into the future, the company said in a news release.

“It’s imperative that we be responsible stewards of our community assets. This is core to carrying out our nonprofit mission to improve the health of the people in the communities we serve,” said Barclay Berdan, CEO. “Great organizations are constantly evaluating how effective and efficient they are at meeting consumers evolving expectations. Sometimes that involves tough decisions in certain areas. There are also opportunities for growth in others.”
